SOAKED OATS Confirm Tour Supports Incl Hans Pucket & Ha the Unclear
Soaked Oats are delighted to announce the first round of confirmed support artists for their impending romp around Aotearoa including Hans Pucket in Auckland, Ha the Unclear in Leigh, Nieve Strang in Dunedin and Wiri Donna in Wellington. The DJ prowess of Hot in the City will be at all shows.
As philosophical as always, Soaked Oats' Oscar Mein muses, "Seems like a lucky break; being able to dip out for these shows in October/November. Who knows what may happen in the long term but we are very hyped to be getting back out for this little stint. A wee bag of new songs to show, some new tricks for the old ones, some great friends joining us on the way, let's see what happens eh!".
Having recently finished the first wave of recording for their debut album, Soaked Oats are taking to the road for a string of shows up and down the country.

Soaked Oats are a young four-piece band that percolated into existence in Dunedin, New Zealand in 2017. Catapulted by their infectious and joyful shows and fast-evolving song-writing chops, the band’s profile and fanbase are on a steep rise.
The indie sludge-pop group have become known for endearing live performances, music that has given the band access to tours throughout the UK and America. 2019 saw the release of their most accomplished work to date, the Sludge Pop EP. The band’s single ‘Coming Up’ was discovered by indie-rock icon Sharon Van Etten who shared to her 90 thousand plus fans and lead to sell-out shows across Australasia.
“Soaked Oats rather neatly push the parameters of pop-rock into interesting corners which gently have reference points in alt.country, post-New Wave atmospherics and moody dream-pop.” - Elsewhere
“A healthy dose of familiar southern jangle, a wry sense of humour and a bold rhythm section.” - NZ Herald
“There’s something infectious about their sound; it’s happy, it’s relaxed and a little bit cheeky.” - PileratsBack to Artist News
